WRONG!!!!! Well, Friday came and went and we still don't have our LOA. I was SO hopeful that Friday would be out day. Words cannot describe my sadness and disappointment right now.
Every day that goes by is one less day we will spend with Kalia.
Every day that goes by is one more day she goes without a family.
I simply do not understand it. It is so hard to stay optimistic, but I just keep telling myself over and over, "In His time, In His time, be patient, He will know when the time is right."
We did get some sort of an update Firday. I'm not really sure if it is good news or bad. We are still waiting for more information.
This is what our agency had to say...
"Your reviewer is just back from a 2 week leave, but does not know why you do not yet have LOA as your dossier is not currently in review room. (He just said “he doesn’t know” where your dossier is). Our in China contact is going back to CCCWA to talk to them about your case and find out where it is and why there is no LOA yet, but I scanned in your “In process” screen shot, LID info, and gave them your PA. Our contact is also going to get them to fax it (LOA) if it is not yet sent out.
Im so sorry… We were all hoping for this week, but it looks like it may be a bit longer…"
I just feel like we have already been through h*ll and back with this adoption. Like it wasn't enough that a close family member tried to sabotage the whole adoption now we are learning that our dossier is no where to be found. Really?
I did get a comment the other day from a reader who quoted a bible verse that has brought much encouragement...
"For the vision still has its time, presses on to fulfillment and will not disappoint; if it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late." Habakkuk2:3
And this is how The Message Bible says it ~And then God answered: "Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what's coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn't lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It's on its way. It will come right on time. Habakkuk 2:3
It WILL come. It WIILL come in His time. And when it does, you can bet we WILL be over the moon.
Please pray that things start looking up for us and that our LOA comes quickly. The longer it takes, the longer Kalia has to wait for a family.
The Vera Bradley Fundraiser ends THIS Friday so there is still plenty of time to get your chance to win one of these awesome bags, whether it is for yourself or a friend. Remember, Christmas is just around the corner and what a joy it would be to know that not only are you putting a smile on the recipients face, but you will also be putting a smile on the face of a nine year old girl.
